I don't normally have this many awesome projects in my studio at once, but due to circumstances, I have some time that I am taking advantage of. It's also the perfect time to get ready for NaMoPaiMo, painting my mini resin collection, and pumping out sales horses.
Creating sales horses has been a major goal these past couple months. One of them is this Breyer Stablemate Belgian that I am converting into a show-type Shire. This is my second attempt at draft feathers. I'm not sure if he'll be for sale prepped and primed, or for sale painted. I am tempted to paint this hunk.
Then in the personal collection category, this Breyer Stablemate G2 American Saddlebred (ASB) is converting very nicely into a more correct, more modern type ASB mare. She even survived a chewing attack by my puppy.
I have a dozen unpainted artist resin horses in my collection, and it was my 2019 goal to have them all prepped and primed at the end of the year. Well, only four were fully prepped and primed come December 2019, with this Mini Brio Sombra almost making fifth. He was an unusually rough cast and I've spent all year smoothing him out, fixing up his legs, and replacing his details so he looks like a faithful mini of the traditional Brio Sombra. He's almost there, and should make it in time for NaMoPaiMo. If you watched my vlog video last week, you'll know that he's also one of my contenders for my official NaMoPaiMo entry horse.
This is only a little sampling of all the horses I am working on this week, both for NaMoPaiMo, my personal collection, and sales horses. Check back regularly for more, as well as my social media for all their progress and tips into how I am making them.
